Abstract

It is estimated that eightreecreation and park programs account for approximately 80 percent of the doctoral students currently emolled in this field. Results from the survey of these eight universities indicate that the number of doctoral students is declining and it is suggested that this decline will continue, particularly in the administration area. One-third of those emolled are non-U.S. residents and only five U.S. minorities were reported. The doctoral degree is likely to take closer to four than three years. Levels of fmancial support offered by the eight universities are presented.
